Finally … the weather is beautiful (for now - more cold fronts expected), the boat is finished (for now - it's never really finished), we're fully provisioned, the laundry is done, the water tanks are full, and we even baked gluten-free chocolate chip cookies in our little oven last night (burned half of them - but never mind, the rest are delicious!).
Both of us are feeling better physically, and the no-see-um bites, that we got the first night we were here two weeks ago, have finally stopped itching. So all is right with the world :).
We're anchored right across from the Beach at Chat 'N Chill - our favourite hangout in Elizabeth Harbour, waiting for the arrival of our friend Susan today. Then, if the wind stays reasonable, we'll set sail for the first time this trip - probably to Red Shanks - about an hour away, for a shakedown (to test out our rig and make sure it's still working).
I don't know how much time I'll have to post on the blog while Susan's here, so it may be a few days, but I hope to have some good stories to tell at that point. For now, adieu… and be well, all! I hope you all had a fine Valentine's Day.
